MIT's Supply Chain Management (SCM) Master's Program, housed within the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics (CTL) at the Institute's School of Engineering, has been named top master's program for supply chain management for 2024 by three leading global rankings institutions: QS World University Rankings, Eduniversal, and Supply Chain Digital.

QS World University Rankings, recognized for its thorough evaluation of over 1,500 institutions across 104 locations worldwide, has singled out MIT SCM as the premier program in the field. QS considers five main facets in determining rankings: employability of degree recipients; alumni CEO and executive outcomes; tuition, alumni salaries, and return on investment; thought leadership and research impact; and class and faculty diversity. With an emphasis on career sustainability and growth, QS's acknowledgment reflects MIT's commitment to preparing students for success in today's dynamic business landscape.

Eduniversal, known for its exhaustive review of over 5,800 master's and MBA programs across 50-plus fields of study spanning more than 150 countries, also bestowed the No. 1 ranking upon MIT's SCM program. Eduniversal's assessment takes into consideration the MIT Global SCALE Network of six innovation centers (MIT CTL, Ningbo China Institute for Supply Chain Innovation, Zaragoza Logistics Center, Center for Latin-American Logistics Innovation, the Malaysia Institute for Supply Chain Innovation, and Luxembourg Center for Logistics and Supply Chain Management), underscoring MIT's global impact and leadership in real-world applications in supply chain education.

Supply Chain Digital, a leading industry publication with an audience of global logistics executives, recently honored MIT CTL as the provider of the No. 1 supply chain program globally. This recognition highlights MIT’s influence in shaping the future of supply chain from the perspective of company leadership and management.

In addition to its master’s program, MIT CTL offers an online MicroMasters program, which registered its one-millionth learner in late 2022. After finishing the online program, certificate holders can apply to MIT (and other universities) and obtain a full master’s degree in a single semester.

“Our program prides itself on its interdisciplinary curriculum and close collaboration with industry leaders,” says Maria Jesús Saénz, executive director of the MIT SCM Masters Programs, “so that our graduates can emerge equipped with the skills, knowledge, and mindset needed to tackle the complex and dynamic challenges facing modern supply chains. We are as committed as ever to fostering excellence and driving positive, real-world challenges.”

MIT CTL has been a world leader in supply chain management education and research for more than five decades. The center has made significant contributions to supply chain and logistics and has helped numerous companies gain competitive advantage from its cutting-edge research.

“We are thrilled by the recognition of the SCM program by these esteemed organizations,” says Professor Yossi Sheffi, director of the MIT CTL. “This achievement reflects the dedication of our faculty, staff, and students in serving as a world leader in supply chain management education and research by driving supply chain innovation into practice.”
